The retail market is facing major challenges with e-commerce and rapidly changing consumer needs disrupting the traditional shopping centre model. Retailers that want to stay in the race are already embracing new concepts and formats. The future of retail will be one of the key topics to be discussed at the upcoming CEE Property Forum 2018 in Vienna.

On 20 September 2018, CEE Property Forum, a conference and networking event for real estate professionals from all over the CEE region will be held for the sixth time in Vienna. Over 500 guests from more than 25 countries will come together in the Austrian capital to discuss the future of the real estate industry and to analyse the potential of Central & Eastern European markets from an international perspective. The event is organised by the Property Forum media and event platform in close cooperation with RICS. The conference has already attracted renowned speakers from regional as well as European property markets and the list of speakers continues to grow.
This year’s conference is centred on the topic of technology. Innovation is reshaping the property industry which is why CEE Property Forum 2018 aims to prepare guests for future changes by analysing current trends during the panel discussions of the day and by gathering speakers to share their vision for the next phase of the profession. The conference will cover all markets in the region, from the Czech Republic to Romania and from Poland to Serbia. Individual discussions will also be dedicated to all market segments, including office, industrial, retail, hotel and student housing.
CEE Property Forum 2018 will be all about connectivity. An interactive networking app will help participants in exchanging info and setting up meetings. The event will also feature an exclusive pre-conference networking reception on the night of 19 September, giving participants an extra opportunity to make meaningful new connections.
